For a second year, we are excited to announce The Great Make-A-Wish Campout in honour of Hillary and Oliver's Birthdays! 

The Great Make-A-Wish Campout is a community event to bring everyone together to celebrate the magic of a wish!

Help to make sure that when life returns to normal, no child will have to wait for their already-delayed wish.

In the National Capital Region over 350 children are currently waiting for their most heartfelt wish.  By supporting The Great Make A Wish Campout you can help grant the wish of a critically ill child.  In these times, hope is essential for children with critical illnesses and you can unlock its life changing power today. A child’s wish begins with hope—and hope begins with you. Don’t wait for hope. Create it. Register or donate to The Great Make A Wish Campout today.

On the weekend of June 25-28, our community will be invited to campout in their backyard, campground, or even in their living room to help grant wishes. Participants will have the opportunity to share photos and stories and participate in fun camping games and challenges throughout the weekend.

This year two very special Wish Ambassador Kids are joining the campout and challenging you to help them Wish-It-Forward!

Accept The Challenge:


Local 7-year-old wish kid Hillary is back as one of our official campout ambassador kids and she’ll be turning 8 years old during the campout!  In honour of her birthday and the one year anniversary of her wish, she’s challenging you to campout and make a donation to Make-A-Wish Canada to help grant wishes to other children like herself who are currently waiting for their life-changing wish. The Great Make-A-Wish Campout was inspired by Hillary who loves camping! To learn more about Hillary click on the Featured Wish Kids tab.


Wish Ambassador Child Oliver recently received his most heartfelt wish and now he wants you to help him Wish-It-Forward.  He is joining wish kid Hillary as an official campout spokes kid. He too will be celebrating his 9th birthday during the campout and would like to encourage people to participate in honour of his birthday. Oliver says, “A Wish makes kids happy and joyful, and gives us lots of laughter and fun”.  He is challenging you to campout and donate to Make-A-Wish Canada to help grant wishes like his. To learn more about Oliver click on the Featured Wish Kids tab.
